I almost threw up :>( Wife mentioned it to the girl behind the counter... she apologized and said they have a problem with their exterminator not coming to spray. The... More

Muffa's only has the one oven that I saw, so sometimes there's no pizza left on the lunch buffet because they're cooking to go orders. I gotta say, that's a minor issue, because everything else is fabulous.

The food here is so good. They will make your food to order so don't be in a hurry. This is not fast food. Great service and wonderful value.

Muffaletta's sign jumped out at me as we were driving through Bessemer. I'm so glad we stopped. My cousin and I are visiting and we split the 9 inch Muffaletta. So good. Very friendly place. I was told by one of the patrons that the cheese ravioli was excellent.

We went here for lunch and man I'm glad we did! Pass on the buffet and get a 6 inch muffalletta! First they are very well done - good crisp bread, delicious meats and cheese and plenty of olives. It was the best I've had outside of Central Grocery in NOLA! The service was a bit slow but it was... More

This place is a dive in Bessemer, but Oh my! The muffalletta sandwich is the absolute best there is. The bread is great, the meats are great, and the cheese is melted perfectly. The olive, peppers and onion mix they put in and on top of the sandwich... Oh my! Yum!

This is a good place to eat Italian, especially if you like authentic taste. The sauce and the meatballs are especially good.

Wanted to try their muffalletta since we had recently been exposed to this sandwich in NOLA. Although we did like their version served cooked/warm, but we did not care for the bread being covered with melted butter sauce. Next time would ask to not have this done. Otherwise a close second to Central Grocery's version. We were in NOLA this... More

Food was very good and brings us back often. Small place and no frills. Wish they had a larger place.
